In an age of seemingly endless selfies and carefully crafted online personas, what role does photography play in authentic identity building? This panel discussion, moderated by Katherine Dennis, curator at the Art Gallery at Evergreen in Coquitlam, sees the artist-participants discuss approaches to (self-)portraiture, the role of costuming, the creation of alter egos, the editing of personal and cultural histories, and the position of the photographer in presenting not just their own identities but those of their subjects. Artists Carol Sawyer, Elizabeth Milton, and Kali Spitzer each incorporate these issues into their artistic practices but through very different photographic approaches and mediums.
The Capture Speaker Series is presented in partnership with Inform Interiors
